MetaCPAN Hackathon in Chicago

Olaf Alders has announced meta::hack, a MetaCPAN hackathon in Chicago. MetaCPAN is the best place to search for CPAN modules, and includes lots of useful information like documentation, links to the source repository and bug tracker, and a summary of CPAN Testers results.

Much like the Perl QA Hackathon, this event will get the core MetaCPAN team together to achieve a few targeted goals. The biggest current goal is to get the platform upgraded to ElasticSearch version 2, but other, smaller tasks may come up as well.

If you can help, sponsor the meta::hack hackathon. Sponsorship will help pay for travel expenses for the team so they can concentrate on making MetaCPAN better.
